  1. I have run braid and wire. I actually see the benefits of both, but the negatives of wire outweigh the negatives of braid. So braid it is for my boat. We run 65# PowerPro with 30# mono as backer. I think I put a few hundred of backer on. It works really well. Fleas are fleas no matter what you do, and no twilli tip to mess with.

  2. Properly functioning Mag10HS have autostop at the surface built in. You shouldn't have to set anything if they are working properly. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Very warm water along the mountain. Loaded with fish, but just a lot of loafing. Trench warfare is coming. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. I know two people that have a 20 Yamaha on a Baha 28. Pushes it around just fine. Both have custom made rigid brackets in he center at the waterline. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. As far as I know, Lowrance will not do it. I cannot find it on my Garmin Echomap Plus. Maybe the higher end plotters will do it. It would be interesting to see a list of machines that will do it. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I have looked and looked. If you can find an old fishing hot spots map, they had the TD's on them. Funny thing is, a lot of fisherman don't even know what TD's are. We use TD's extensively here in the eastern basin. I know I may get hammered for this, but Bill Saiff III introduced me to the system and how it aligns perfectly with the structure of the eastern basin of Lake Ontario. Furuno GP-39's will overlay TD's and give you your numbers too.
  7. A switch and two batts for sure. Especially with that small kicker not charging. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Even better. Put in a main switch between the fuse block and batteries. By doing so, you eliminate possibly leaving something on and killing the battery/batteries. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. I put a Garmin Echomap Plus 94 on my Shamrock with a GT-51M transom mount 'ducer. Everyone says transom mounts don't read well on inboard boats. On plane there is some interference, but I can still see fish, bait and bottom. At trolling speed it looks like I am in demo mode it is so clear. I could not be happier with this unit. I love the hybrid touch/programmable soft button option on this unit. The touch option is lockable with a push of a button so clients don't mess up my settings, etc. Very intuitive interface and quick to move about the settings.

  10. I have heard and seen from many people that insufficient juice will put a Cannon downrigger in the hurt locker. Dropping with the motor, is not so bad, but the draw on the way up will fry a board if the charging system is not up to the task. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. I think a saw a NIB Mag 5 ST at Woody's this AM. Add the extendable boom to it, which I think they have, and you've got at least one Mag 10. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. $41,900 on their website. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. IO? Does the engine rev up, but won't go anywhere? If so, a little more complicated. Sounds like your cable end at the carb is loose, off or broke. One cable shifts her into gear, another advances the throttle in gear. Take a look at the carb or throttle body to see where the cable terminates. It may be obvious. If not, maybe the same is true at the controller end. You can pull it off to look and see, but don't take it apart unless you are confident in putting it back together. They are full of springs and stuff that must go back together correctly. The problem may be obvious in the back of the controller. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. My Elite 7 Chirp used to pull this same crap. It's only purpose is my chart now. My Lowrance Ice pack does the same thing when hole hopping. I just think their 'ducers are just too finicky. I think it has somehing to do with bubbles, turbulence, speed and how the machine interprets what the 'ducer is sending to it. Much the same way it wouldn't read shallow water. Just a PITA So I went to Garmin. Much better. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Just a quality clip at end of floro leader. Swivel or bead chain between main line and floro. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. There is. The Fishing Hot Spots maps show all of this stuff...if you can find one. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. Launch at Henderson. Run to Shipping Lane or Mountain. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. Plain pledge is best for isinglass. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. I know someone that fished the Lane this week, and did not hit 'em real good. A few fish came to the net, but not great numbers for the ride out there.
  20. A couple things to consider with braid for dipsies: 1. Fleas usually stick to the braid worse, but then again they stick to wire and mono too. 2. The thicker the line, the better. Even though a lighter braid will hold the pull of a mag dipsy just fine, a heavier, say 65# braid is thicker and maybe the fleas won't adhere as badly. I am using 65# PowerPro and have really good luck with it as far as fleas. They are there, but manageable. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. Yes. LakeVu does cover Lake Ontario. The Garmin BlueChart does too, but it lacks detail in some of the bays. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. Garmin units with the LakeVu built in are really nice. The echomap plus units are hybrid touch and have programmable soft keys you can make bring up any screen you want automatically. You do get bells and whistles, but the new Garmin stuff is just really nice.
  23. Great Lakes Planers makes some really nice, stout and customizable arches. He can/will make or customize to anything you want. This is a local business(Three Mile Bay, NY) and knows what we need here on Lake Ontario. www.greatlakesplaners.com
  24. If I remember, you bought a Proline 231 with a 5.7 that needed to be rebuilt? 42 MPH would be a little faster than factory spec for that boat. Maybe you just need to dial back the carb a little. Maybe you've already done that. Just a thought. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  25. I see. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
